    Hello Friends. I think we all got the same questions but no answers. So let's team up and clear it for all times. :)

    Scenario:

    1. MP Bot is running on VPN with 5 Accounts without Proxy. You are accessing these Accounts via your Phone on private without any proxies.

    2. MP Bot is running on VPN with 5 Accounts + 3 Accounts on 1 dedicated Proxy. You are accessing all Accounts via your Phone on private without any proxies.

    When 1 Account is banned in scenario 1, all accounts are getting banned?

    Will Instagram get you flagged on scenario 2?

    If one account gets banned others won't be affected because of that ban. However, that doesn't mean you're safe. You have linked ALL accounts together by leaving footprints and Instagram knows that they're all owned by the same person.

    Exactly what JustChillin above me said, don't ever link your accounts together, especially not with such a strong footprint as sharing the same IP over multiple accounts. If you want to save money and share the same IP on 3 accounts, make sure those 3 accounts are not going to be the end of the world in case they get banned.

    I usually go with 2 accounts per IP, if I increase it to 3 accounts per IP I don't get banned but I am receiving email / phone verifications more frequently on those accounts which are using "bad" IPs.

    Thank You. How do you post on Instagram. Do you use one device for all and change proxy or habe different phones?

    Do you SMS vwrify all accounts with 1 sim card?

    Just try to make the bot act natural.

    Imagine you go to a mall and there's free wifi... if you bring you laptop there and start spamming Instagram, do you think they will ban every Instagram account that used the mall wifi ip address? no :D

    Thank you guys. You are helping me a lot.

    I have 1 business account, where I'm selling my brand apparel, it is very important and I want to keep it safe. So my thought was to use it on extra dedicated proxy. For all other Accounts I will use other proxies.

    My final question is, can I upload all my photos for all accounts from 1 phone? ...I think, yes. But I'm not sure.

    Yes, you can but you must login with your phone using same proxy as MP, not one proxy for all accounts (on phone) and maybe you will also need to change device ID to be more safe.

    Doesn't Instagram let you switch (instead of log out and log in tedium) up to 5 accounts on a phone?

    never get banned on the first scenario but get a phone verification.
    just get the effect on one of the accounts.

    and yes you can upload your photos from 1 phone.
    update your instagram and you can add more than 1 accounts in 1 phone

    Thanks Guys. Yes I know, I can use 5 Accounts. But what is with 10 Accounts. I need to log in and log out for that. Does it make my suspicious for Instagram?

    i wouldn't do it. more than 5 account in 1 device is dangerous.

    better upload it using MP instead

    Ye, I'm not sure about it yet. I think I need to test it with one account and look if I get some issues or not. I heard bad things about posting with MP.

    Posting with MP is fine but you will need a proxy. Accounts on a phone, IG doesn't care how many IPs you use, but once you use a bot, it knows and limits you to IPs. People don't realize that IG knows when you are running a bot, they allow it, but they're are more restrictions and limits.

    Problem is, if the IPs are not in the same city, you can not jump back and forth between your phone and MP.

    I actually have 7 Accounts. I run my most important account on VPS IP as standalone. For the others I use dedicated proxys (3 Acc on 1 Proxy).

    I think I will access all my accounts with 1 phone, otherwise it will get really complicated.

    The problem is that there are so many opinions doing the rounds, and everyone has his own method doing it successfully. I'm trying to gather all needed information to avoid stupid mistakes at the beginning and not to get flagged.

    I'm running 5 Accounts with MP on VPS with 1 Proxy for 3 Accounts and I'm planing to add +5 Accounts to my portfolio. My main Business Instagram Account has the highiest priority in keeping it safe, so I use a standalone IP for it. It is also an aged account (ca. 3 Years).

    What I will also do is, get a cheap phone and a sim card to verify all other accounts except my businnes one. Need to keep it separated.

    When it comes to posting content I'm not really sure yet, If I will go with one phone for all accounts (logging in / logging out), use MP to post content or use an Web Application for that. My favorite is definitely my own phone, i'm good at that. :)

    ----
    I also think that the parameters that will give a ban are not IP based but are caused by aggressive bot settings. I keep my settings Instagram friendly but also near to the edge. I setup my bot with intervals and delays of a behaviour of a daily user. With these parameters I never had any problems or warnings, except one ban, but it was a young account and my fault giving it the parameters of an aged account. ...I learned from that.
